Romance options in video games have been a pretty big fixture within RPGs. The Mass Effect franchise catapulted these systems into a somewhat over-the-top level of prominence and video games have never really looked back. And when it comes to Ubisoft, they haven’t been left behind the curve on this either. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the next entry in the iconic assassination adventure franchise, and it’s going through some rather unique changes.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has a new setting and story loaded with Viking warriors and chaotic bloodshed, but it’s also developing a bit more of a softer and more ordered side. The new game will have settlements that are managed by the players, acting as a sort of hub world to mess around with after missions and exploring the world.
As you mess around with the plans of the Templars and take over new territory, including an entirely new multiplayer mode involving raiding other players and battling their armies, players will encounter various NPCs that can join their clan. And yes, interaction with these fine folks will open up new diplomatic and political options. Not only will you be building your military might, but you will also be building relationships.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla romance options are still a bit in the dark, as we don’t know much about the characters in the game, but we know it will tie into the core of the settlement gameplay. Players will also use the new dialogue systems and RPG mechanics to create relationships with other factions that will have an impact on gameplay.
So yes, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla romance options will be a thing in the game with story and gameplay impact.
The game releases in Holiday 2020. As of now, Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is due out later this year via the Epic Games Store, Uplay and Stadia for PC. Releases for console ports via Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, and PS5 are all planned.
